Canada to appeal WTO panel finding in lumber dispute with U.S. - statement
OTTAWA, April 15 (Reuters) - Canada will appeal last week's decision by the World Trade Organization (WTO) which ruled to allow the United States to use "zeroing" to calculate anti-dumping tariffs, Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland said in a statement on Monday.
"We firmly believe that the U.S. duties on Canadian softwood lumber are unfair and unwarranted," Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland said in a statement. "That is why we are challenging these duties at the WTO and under NAFTA." (Reporting by Steve Scherer Editing by Chizu Nomiyama)
